Braids announce Companion EP with beautiful music video directed by Kevan Funk.
Pre-order Companion due out May 20th here.
Braids are a three-piece experimental pop band from Montreal. In the spring of 2015 they released Deep In The Iris, their standout third record. Companion is the band’s latest 19 minute EP, written during the Deep In The Iris sessions, and completed during a burst of creative energy in August 2015.
Here Braids use the Deep In The Iris palette to paint decidedly different vistas – joy, disaffection, thunderous explosion to delicate introspection, the minimalistic power of “Companion” to the patient blossoming of “Sweet World”. The EP offers a brief snapshot of a constantly-evolving group, perpetually exploring the edges of their unique voice.
Distinct in their own right, these four tracks are not to be dismissed as b-sides, outtakes, or the lesser of a group of songs. Though it uses Deep In The Iris as a compositional guidepost, Companion is a breathtaking journey all of its own.
Braids are going on tour! Dates below:
